After a so-so night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Anthony Perosh (pictured), Sergio Moraes, Ian McCall and Iliarde Santos each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie.”
It took Perosh all of 14 seconds to earn “Knockout of the Night” honors. The veteran put Vinny Magalhaes to sleep with a right cross and several punches on the mat.
Moraes also made quick work of his opponent en route to pocketing a bonus check. The Brazilian jiu jitsu specialist caught Neil Magny in a nifty triangle choke to win “Submission of the Night.”
Saturday’s show wasn’t the most thrilling the Octagon has ever hosted, so McCall’s lopsided unanimous decision victory over Santos was good enough for “Fight of the Night.”
UFC 163 took place inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Fight of the Night:
Ian McCall and Iliarde Santos ($50,000/each)
Submission of the Night:
Sergio Moraes ($50,000)
